"I know Samantha for more than ten years. She helped me sell two apartments as well as buy another one. Her knowledge of the market is first rate. She is incredibly smart and hard working and pays attention to every detail. Most importantly I trusted that she would take good care of me and always had my interest at heart. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell an apartment." - Robin M.

"We confidently placed the sale of our Manhattan property into the seasoned hands of Samantha Reiss, and we were not disappointed. Her extensive experience, knowledge of the luxury market, and analytical data she procured to understand prospective buyer behavior, were all truly impressive. Despite difficult circumstances with Covid last year, Samantha found a prequalified buyer and we had a signed contract within 3 months. I must also attribute our positive outcome to her excellent communication with us, as the seller, and our prospective buyers. Bravo! Her professionalism was greatly appreciated, and I can highly recommend Samantha." - Yvette D.

★★★★★
"Samantha Reiss represented us both in selling our former apartment and purchasing our current home. I cannot say enough about how wonderful she made both experiences.

She is knowledgeable about the market and about every step of the process. She is a very positive person and an absolute pleasure to work with." - Marsi T.

I highly recommend her." - Anita S.

"If you want THE BEST real estate agent in New York City you should hire Samantha. I had hired two agents previously to sell a home in Harlem and they couldn't get it done. Then I hired Samantha Reiss. All I have to say is she provided us with INCREDIBLE service and if you want to sell your home in New York, I don't think it gets any better." - Deborah M.

★★★★★
"I was not satisfied with my previous broker, so I met with Samantha and Olivier. They were very responsive and marketing savvy. My condo apartment in front of Lincoln Center was on the market for several months with no serious offers on the table. They proposed a new strategy including taking it off the market, staging it and creating new marketing collaterals. Right away we got three offers and some were all cash. They are very creative and know how to sell. I will definitely call them back!" - Tom S

★★★★★
"We were introduced to Samantha and her team through a business colleague and couldn't be happier with the reference! Throughout our search for a NYC apartment, Samantha was extremely responsive, helped us narrow our search quickly, and when it came time to visit properties (we do not live in NYC), she organized all of the logistics in an extremely efficient manner. She made the most of our limited time count. We should also state that we personally hit it off and made a great time of what could have been a stressful process. She held our hand (so to speak) throughout the unique process of buying a NY coop apartment and happy to say that we are closing next week in time for Broadway reopening! Thanks Samantha and Catherine!" - John A.

She will lead you though a co-op board process with precision and ease after ensuring all of your needs are met. I would give her more than 5 stars if I could and I would not dream of working with anyone else." - Carolyn R.

"I have bought and sold several apartments with Samantha and her team over the past 20 years. She has always been a pleasure to work with and so good at what she does! She responds to everything quickly, is a master negotiator and gets the job done well every time! I would definitely recommend her to anyone and I will continue working with her myself!" - Jackie G.

★★★★★
"If I had listed qualities that I had wanted in a broker before I put it on the apartment on the market, Samantha not only surpassed my expectations but taught me what a realtor could and should be. No question was irrelevant. No time was too late or early to contact her. No concern went unaddressed. And, all the while, Samantha, who I came to call Sam, kept the process light and loving. I think it's quite obvious that I highly recommend both Sam and her team." - Elma K.

I always felt my needs were a priority to you and that you would do everything necessary to find the right apartment. Most of all I never felt pressured.

"With Samantha’s help we purchased our beautiful apartment in midtown years ago. We loved working with her, her attention to detail was excellent and she was very responsive to our needs. Recently, when our oldest son was apartment hunting in Williamsburg, we again reached out to Samantha for her expertise. A member of her team, Olivier, knew the area very well and he assisted my son to find an apartment that he loves. We know that if we or any of our friends need realtors in The New York area, we would highly recommend Samantha and her team." - Leonard R.

"Samantha helped us buy our apartment in a difficult market. We were so impressed by her professionalism and experience with NY real estate, as well as her dedication and responsiveness, which made what could have been a very stressful experience so much easier than expected. What we especially valued is that she was not just trying to sell an apartment — she respected our wishes and really looked out for our interests throughout. We were so impressed that we then asked her to rent out our high-end rental property, which she handled beautifully. We feel extremely fortunate to have had her as our broker for both transactions." - Fatemeh Z.

★★★★★
"We first met Samantha when she represented the seller of the apartment we purchased in 2002. Samantha always stayed in touch with us for the years we lived there. Then, during a tough market, we hired Samantha to list our apartment. Samantha got more than just the job done! She always operates with the highest level of integrity. As a result, we closed a few months ago while other apartments in our building are still sitting on the market. We found Samantha to be more thorough than most agents (for example, she provided a stager). She always offered expert advice, but never pushed too hard, and allowed us to make the decisions. She and her team were great to work with during a stressful time in NYC!" - Christine G.
